Security officer helps nab men posing as housekeepers at Guesthouse of Graceland

MEMPHIS, Tenn. May 18 2017— Two men are accused of pretending to be housekeeping staff to enter rooms at the Guest House at Graceland.
Officers were called to the hotel around 6 a.m. Sunday, where a security officer observed the suspicious activity of the men and relayed complaints about the two men entering rooms, posing as housekeeping staff.
He said he saw the suspects driving toward the exit, and police were able to detain them.
The security officer told police one of the suspects used to work at the Guest House at Graceland but was terminated and banned from the premises.
The Guest House at Graceland clarified neither suspect was an employee; they were contract agency workers, one former and one current.
The hotel said it is terminating its relationship with that temp agency.
Police said one of the suspects had a master key card in his possession as well as stolen property.
Security footage showed the two suspects went into multiple rooms, police said.
The Guest House at Graceland said the stolen property was returned to the guests and the controlled-access system was reset right away.
Police did not give the names of the suspects.
Both men are facing criminal charges.

Absolute nonsense of a story, The security officer did not observe the robbers activity, I caught them in my room at 5.15 am, where I challenged them, and they claimed they were housekeeping staff.
My wife locked the door behind me and I went down to reception to complain about the staff coming into a room that said do not disturb on the door,thats when i discovered they were not staff, the security officer was at the reception desk and asked me to show him my room, etc.
WE couldn't find the men at this point, and we looked over several parts of the hotel, including housekeeping incase they were there.
The security man then got a radio report from reception that they had just had 2 calls from other room guests who had seen men in their rooms on the 6th level, so we made our way to there, and this is where we caught them.
By this time the police had been called, and the men tried to make a break for it.I had to identify the men for the police and the policeman also came to our room for my statement.The Guesthouse should be ashamed that they are not only covering up the danger that I and the other guests involved were in, but to then claim that they were the ones who dealt with it is an absolute disgrace.I am now looking into legal action against the hotel for its behaviour.Bruce Seaton room 734
